This work presents the subject of college student suicide in a somewhat different manner. With the words of college students as they speak, write and think about their suicidal experience, the author creates a group of three dimensional personages who pop-up from this two dimensional page and become real individuals who can heighten our awareness of the effect suicide has upon individuals and the campus as an entity.
